Every Mac with a built-in screen comes with an iSight camera these days. The camera has good quality video images and whether it’s use on an iMac or a MacBook iSight is good for photos, movies, and especially Skype and FaceTime.
Typical Apple. iSight seems to work like the camera in an iPhone. It’s good when there’s plenty of light, but not so good in low light situations. What the iSight camera needs is a little video enhancement control tool to improve the quality of the camera’s images.
iSight needs iGlasses.
This is one of my favorite Mac add ons because it improves where Apple stopped. iGlasses gives you granular controls over the iSight camera’s image. Presets, Effects, Adjustments, even Zoom and Flip are a click away.
With iGlasses you can control color– add extra saturation. Or, boost the image in low light. Lest you think iGlasses is all work and no play, check out the fun video effects– perfect for photos or movies, and dozens are included.
Adjust color, contrast, brightness with ease. Not only does iGlasses enhance the iSight camera’s video, you can use it in Skype or FaceTime or Google Talk. If a Mac app can use the iSight camera, iGlasses makes the image better. Or, different.
The fun effects are similar to those in Photo Booth, so of nominal benefit. The digital zoom is lame (as is the case with all cameras which have digital zoom). The real claim to fame with iGlasses is the option to enhance the video image in low light situations. That alone is worth the price of admission if you use iSight and don’t have good lighting.
